The findings also disproved claims by Brown’s friend, Dorian Johnson, that the teen raised his hands to surrender before he was gunned down. The report said, those reports were “inaccurate because they are inconsistent with the physical and forensic evidence.”
In a report released on Wednesday, prosecutors said that “Wilson’s actions do not constitute prosecutable violations” of federal civil rights law, CNN reports. The DOJ said, “There is no evidence upon which prosecutors can rely to disprove Wilson’s stated subjective belief that he feared for his safety.”
This ruling comes one day after the Justice Department released a 100-page report that found the Ferguson Police Department systematically discriminated against blacks.
